When choosing the cake for the reception party you have to take into consideration a few essential coordinates of the wedding. First of all, you’ll have to consider the formality of the event you’re planning. At this point you can establish the most adequate design and size of the cake. It’s true that the formality of the wedding is typically related to the amplitude and venue.
Make sure that you decide on the size of the cake after you complete your guest list. It’s important to know exactly how big your wedding is going to be before making any hasty decision. You risk bringing a cake that’s too small or too large. Anyway, it’s never a real problem if the cake is too big. You will have more slices to send to those who couldn’t make it to the party or give them to the kids in your family. There are many designs out there to consider. Both big and small cake styles are in for this year’s wedding.
However, we have to admit that there is a beautiful trend nowadays based on smaller cakes. The pretty cupcake trend has been replaced by mini cakes and individual confections. These tiny sweet creations look amazing and they are incredibly versatile. You can use them instead of a big tiered cake or as wedding guest favors. There are many other ways of incorporating them in your reception. They can even be placed on the dinner tables as part of the décor.
Or, you can organize a special table of desserts and add more of your favorite cookies. Candy buffet and dessert tables that feature a big cake and other thematic sweet treats for the guests are very popular. So we should focus on small cakes today. We personally like the small cakes based on two tiers. A 2-tiered cake is something special and intriguing. The “regular” size is of three tiers and we have to admit that it looks more balanced this way. But a two tier cake? How does this design look like? In our opinion it is very elegant, sweet and unique. Its unusual size makes it such an appealing selection for a modern wedding.
These types of cakes are fresh and contemporary, youthful and playful. They are great for casual wedding parties, but also for simple and smaller affairs. 2-tiered cakes deal for medium size wedding celebrations, but they can also be incorporated in bigger affairs. You can bring more of these cakes and arrange them on a special table. Instead of using a traditional layered cake, choose various small cakes in different sizes and designs. This will add more diversity to your party. Use different colors and flavors for a versatile taste.
